okay, long story kinda short...i have a crush on this guy that i know. he is actually a good friend of my cousin, he very briefly dated my ex-roommate/good friend (no chemistry btw them) and i've known him a couple years now. i wouldn't say that we know each other well but enough to call each other a friend. he is a great guy, with a great personality, has a lot going for him, etc...etc. it's always been that one or both of us were in a relationship so i never thought about him in that way. every time i ran into him or were in a group hanging out we always had a nice time talking and laughing...i always found myself enjoying the person he is. well i was out at a local picnic with a big group of friends this past weekend...having a blast drinking, dancing and socializing when we ran into each other. we chatted for a bit and in conversation he mentioned that he and his girl split about 3 months ago... he knew (through the grapevine) that my guy and i split about 6 months ago. i didn't get the chance to talk to him more bc there was just so much going on but i am finding myself thinking about him a lot now. i talked with my friend who dated him and she is super cool about him and i if we were to do something. she didn't have any feelings for him in that way so i wouldn't be stepping on her toes at all...if it would i would never go there. i'm not afraid to take the first step bc i feel pretty comfortable with him but i just don't want to be denied and then make it weird btw us. i just don't know what to do. i don't even know if he would feel this way about me or may be he wouldn't want to go there bc of my friend...he doesn't want to step on her toes but doesn't realize she doesn't mind one bit. any advice? anyone in a similar situation?

Well, if you have his e mail, you might just send him a quick "Hey, it was good to see you.
